Poem: Tonight, We Burn

Tonight we burn
But not in flames
No riotous chorus
Of slanderous names
Tonight we sear
But not into black
Only move forward
No longer look back
Tonight we smolder
But will not ignite
No more burning
No fires tonight
Tonight we burn
But not in flames
Look back in anger
With no-one to blame
